"To change the world, Fill your heart with love and your mind with positive ideas."
My name is Emma R Ugarelli. I was born in Lima-Peru, where I got a psychology degree and worked with teens and children for over fifteen years. In 2002 I moved to Vancouver, Canada, where I studied Early Childhood Education field where I have been working for the past twenty years. Today although I am still working in my Daycare, I am using my spare time to write children's books and add new material to my educational website, www.emmasplace.ca, hoping that its content will be helpful for parents, educators, and caregivers. Writing children's books, as well as teaching, will always be my passion. Publishing my books was my way to retake control of my life and bring something positive to the world in uncertain times. I currently live in Kitsilano, Vancouver, with my family and cat, Ricky.
